Apocalyptic 2012 Claims Will End in 2012

2012 ScreenshotWill the world end on 2012? NASA says no. In fact, the NASA website has a page specifically dedicated to debunking the myths surrounding 2012 and the end of the Mayan calendar. The website states unequivocally, “credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.” Anyone who says otherwise is propagating “an Internet hoax,” a “bait-and-shift,” or just bad information. NASA takes a shot at an upcoming film called 2012 stating: “Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know.”

The story makes for a great trailer, though:
